The book takes a chronlogical approach and each section has a brief and useful summary of the major events that formed that time period which then also act as the themes for the sections.
Some of the poems are caustic, some humorous; all are poignant. It's fascinating to see such gems produced under such cataclysmic circumstances.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. You can dip into it; read whole sections, or read it from cover to cover.It's immensely enriching and ultimately uplifting to hear these voices from the past.
poems from officers and also personal ones from squaddies to their loved ones at home. Some
of it is so very moving, but some of the poems are very funny.This is a book that you can
read in one go or keep to hand to dip in and out of always finding something wonderful.
